Spectra™ 10 + Lyme vaccine is a combination of immunogenic, attenuated strains of CDV, CAV2, CPIV, and CPV type 2b, propagated in cell line tissue cultures. The diluent contains killed CCV and Bburg antigens with Leptospira bacterial antigens. The CAV2 fraction has been shown to be effective against disease due to CAV1. The CPV2b strain has been demonstrated to be effective against CPV2c in puppies with CPV maternal antibody. Gentamicin and thimerosal added as preservatives.

All dogs should initially receive one dose of this product and a second dose 2 to 3 weeks later. The presence of maternal antibody is known to interfere with the development of active immunity in dogs and additional boosters will be required in most young animals. Historically, annual revaccination with a single dose has been recommended for this product.
